Hi I'm considering buying a used s&w 581, 4" barrel in 357 mag. I would mainly use it as a backup weapon when hunting or primary when tracking wounded boar in corn or thick brush. The only thing that is keeping me from buying it is that I am unsure wether the fixed sights are okay for precise shot placements up to 25yards or not.. What do you say, are fixed sights fine or should I try and get a hold on a 586/686 with adjustable sights? Maybe if anyone of you owns a 581 or 681, could you upload a few pics showing the rear sight and maybe a picture of the aligned sights? The gun I'm intending to buy is a rather rare piece at is has been used by some agency and is "refurbished" and parkerized.. looks roughly like this: Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
